Additional Details:

Smooth is a brindle male with cute ears that stand straight up. He came in from the Daytona Beach Race Track where he ran most of his 110 races. He did race a few at Mardi Gras Racetrack too. Smooth is a smaller male racing at 67lbs. He will turn 4 on June 21st. His sire is WW's Power Press and his dam is WS's Toffee. Smooth was described by his trainer as "personality plus". He does indeed have a lot of personality. He is very friendly and he has never met a stranger. He is fun, bouncy, goofy guy that is definitely high energy for a greyhound. He loves to give hugs. Even a small dog like him is a little too big to do that, so we are correcting that behavior.  Smooth passed his cat and small dog tests easily without much interest in either. He is a smart boy that learns quickly. Smooth takes treats very gently and has learned some very good basic obedience commands. Since he is higher energy he would do best with a fenced yard to run around in every day. He would love an active owner that likes to job or go for walks. Smooth is a very exuberant, happy boy that is very aware of his surroundings and is always up for play, party time, or anything exciting going on. He will do best with a family who is looking for a dog that will enjoy doing things with them instead of just laying on the couch like a typical lazy greyhound.  Smooth would do great with a family that wants to do dog sports or obedience with a greyhound. He has enough energy to make it through an hour long class unlike most lazy greyhounds. Smooth likes kids, because he gets excited and jumps we think he would do best in a home without kids or with older, larger kids that aren't easily knocked down.
